    Also known as the Hello Kitty Bridge.

    This is what I stated: on reflecting, it seemed like the only possible name.

    I would hope the difference between what I stated, and what anyone might have stated is, in literal meaning, and emotional content, clear.

    Did Pete live in Arlington, and if not would that be an issue for the Arlington Board? After all, Bikenetic is in Falls Church city.

    Pete was Bike ambassador for Bike Arlington, so he gets at least honorary resident status.

    Arlington keeps trying to name things including schools and roads after the Lovings, who were not Arlington residents and whose family wants no part of it besides - so Arlington residency is apparently not a requirement. Recent naming trends in the county have highlighted civil rights and abolitionist trailblazers.

    There is already an informally named *Cathedral of Saint Pete Beers*, on Loudon County gravel, of course. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Cathe...6008924687746/

    I am simply going to call it the *Pete Beers Memorial Bridge*, and let our common usage influence the powers that be. (Surreptitious application of weatherproof Hello Kitty stickers? The Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. )

    Laura says that she supports the naming of it, but as a fairly private person, doesn't want to be involved in the process. We have the go ahead to move forward.
